Long Live the King The Heater (Corona) by Caldwell Cigars

COVID-19 Day 609:
 Caldwell Cigars, Corona, Dominican Corojo, Long Live the King, Long Live the King The Heater, Nicaragua Well, I was really looking forward to smoking this Long Live the King The Heater (Corona) by Caldwell Cigars for the second time today, but, I was really surprised at how open and loose the draw from this specimen was… I may have o check the TupperDor when I get back to the Adobe to make sure my humidity levels are correct (I checked and the humidification is spot-on).

After struggling with this cigar just past the first third, I decided to chop off the half of this cigar to see if there was any firmly packed tobacco in this thing. As I felt my way up the cigar, it was soft mushy well past the second third, so that’s where I decided to chop it off…

No luck. I put this out and chalk it up to a learned experience… These are Hand-Rolled (handmade)… it’s a wonder that any of these Premium Hand-Made cigars smoke and perform at all.

I haven’t given up on this Caldwell blend… stay tuned!

COVID-19 Day 548
 Caldwell Cigars, Corona, Dominican Corojo, Long Live the King, Nicaragua I was in disbelief that hadn’t smoked this Caldwell Long Live the King The Heater (Corona). After all this time exploring the other Caldwell blends, I missed this one until today. Well, I’m glad I finally got to spark it!

Once lit, fabulous tobacco flavors of earthy oak, dark chocolate, leather, and a touch of black pepper carry thru to a little zing of black pepper on the retrohale. After it got warmed up a bit, a touch of brown sugar was revealing itself on the finish to accompany the delicious aforementioned tobacco flavors.

I’m almost at the halfway point and I’m enjoying the ramped leather tobacco flavors delivered on plenty of chewy creamy smoke with a touch of something that still reminds me of brown sugar sweetness on the finish. The ash doesn’t want to hang on for more than a half-inch or so at the most, so I’m wondering what type of tobacco is used for the filler… ?

I’m at the last third and I’m loving this cigar… I can’t believe that I’ve missed smoking it amongst the other Caldwell cigars.

More Please!
